As an activist and sociologist, Boulding discusses her quandary: How to work toward the elimination of world famine without succumbing to intervention strategies and crisis mentality. The reliance on literacy, she points out, is responsible for the loss of folk contingency plans and cyclic views of history. Author William Irwin Thompson is founder of the Lindisfarne Association.
The Lindisfarne Tapes are selected recordings of presentations and conversations at the Lindisfarne Fellows’ meetings. In March of 2013 William Thompson granted permission to the Schumacher Center for a New Economics to transfer the talks from the old reel-to-reel tapes to digital format so that they could be posted online and shared freely. Reposting should include acknowledgment of williamirwinthompson.org.
